Deadman on vocals and Digi Hartatak on guitar, synth and programming.

Per a recent interview with Digi Hartatak, "I originally conceived the idea for this song while contemplating the vast emptyness in between my sound processing organs. Then I divided the GPS co-ordinates of an unknown location by the oscillation rate of a broken LFO from a crashed UFO. With this data, I delicately smashed my femur against my leporous appendage detachment apparatus and superimposed the audio rendering of that image to create the flavor to apply to the above calculations, resulting in the number 3, which I promptly discarded and just randomly selected notes from my memory and constructed a pattern in a synth/step sequencer. After becoming a virtuoso guitar savant by watching youtube speed picking lessons, I quietly slammed power chords and hammer on/pull off leads approaching legato but completely ignoring it because legato reminds me of "3" and well 80 doesn't divide nicely into 3 (duh). Now as for the completely unrelated vocals, Deadman took websters dictionary in it's entirety and eliminated any words which did not rhyme with bummbleclot and then scrambled the remaining letters until he had enough raw text to reconstruct the lyrics which are based on the Julian calendar and ancient babylonian moon goddesses but deceptively written to betray the mind with images of pain and bizarre noises associated with downs syndrome and pseudo alliteration. After recieving the vocal tracks I wrote a random selection algorythm in basic inside a Commodore 64 emulator (actually it was a 128 emulator running in emulated 64 mode) and let it select the tracks I used. I then used euclydian geometry to triangulate the co-ordinates which I then translated as where to place them. I seperated them into stereo tracks and used my visual cortex and educated time travel estimation to determine the specific stereo field delay seperation. Then I went back and deleted half the guitar track and panned the remaining side to almost mono, same with the synth bass from the step sequencer. Did some copying and pasting and deleted some vocal parts here and there based on a unified theory of quantum mechanics I drew on a McDonalds napkin in grease and my own blood divided by the square root of the number of phone calls I have ever made. After several months of meditation and group therapy, I found the strength to publish this song and release the good karma onto the dying grunge community in an effort to breath new life into a spent genre by incorporating bleeps and bloops into dirty nasty drunken bark eater music."

Subject: my popop wrote this for me
this was stolen from a pantoon I wrote in third period phys ed in the 8th grade, but my poppop helped me by rewriting it and then Phil Bhutto stole it from Jim's front porch and gave it to noisecollector.

Be careful with that formula you followed, I think
if you had miscalculated in one or two steps
this might have turned into one of those "butterfly flaps
its wings in China and Florida sinks into the gulf, or possibly
new ocean front property in Nevada".

Keep up the good work, you're on a roll.

Legato ? I don't think so.

However, I think this is probably your best offering for a long time.

Mucho fabbo.

with ancient babylonian moon goddesses. I once invited a couple over to my apartment. They got me drunk and then stole my Neil Young cassettes.

Inspirational grunts. Nice ending.

Dig it.

This came out pretty cool. Will have more of an opinion when I am not listening to it on ghetto laptop. :)
